Netflix is showering you in some seriously superb brand new original films and specials throughout April. This month, Netflix is welcoming in a whole array of fresh titles that will do everything from make you laugh to educating you to serving up swoon-worthy titles you’ll fall in love with. Whether you’re looking for something family-friendly, great for a date, or new from overseas, Netflix has got you covered. Keep reading for the streamer’s best new movies coming this April.
It’s no joke that Netflix is starting the month off strong, kicking off April Fool’s Day with some interesting new original films like R-rated meta comedy The Bubble and beautifully animated coming-of-age drama Apollo 10 1/2: A Space Age Childhood, a fictional space adventure story that viewers young and old will adore.
Moving further into the month, the platform is debuting an impressive array of original titles to beef up their already-stacked catalog of hits. Metal Lords is a musical masterpiece that is sure to rock you when it drops on April 8. After that, you can look forward to April 15, when Asa Butterfield-led horror-thriller Choose Or Die bursts onto the scene and will leave you screaming for more. These are exactly the kinds of movies that end up landing on the Netflix Top 10.
To close out the month, Netflix is releasing highly-anticipated romantic-drama Along for the Ride on April 22, a film that features big-name talent like Andie MacDowell and Kate Bosworth in addition to newer faces like Emma Pasarow and Belmont Cameli. Not long after, the streamer continues to spread the love but this time, in a familial way, with offbeat Spanish comedy-drama Honeymoon with My Mother, a foreign-language title that is sure to help you end the month on a high. Want to know what other eye-grabbing movies are dropping on Netflix in the next month? Keeping scrolling to check out our full list of what movies to watch on Netflix in April.
Romance lovers, gear up for a memorable… ride. Based on the 2009 Sarah Dessen novel of the same name, Along for the Ride follows Auden (Emma Pasarow) and the mysterious Eli (Belmont Cameli), a fellow insomniac whom she meets during the summer before leaving for college. Each night whilst the seaside town of Colby slumbers, the pair sets off on a journey to help Auden experience the carefree and fun-filled teen life she never had or knew she wanted. This romantic-drama is an early yet timeless taste of summer love, and what could be sweeter than that?

While it’s set in school, this R-rated musical comedy-drama probably isn’t fit for all kiddos! Metal Lords revolves around teenage misfits Hunter (Adrian Greensmith) and Kevin (Jaeden Martell) who want to start a heavy metal band in order to enter and come out on top in the Battle of the Bands, and then, naturally, finally be worshiped and respected at the school that has always seen them as outsiders. Their plan hits a snag when they struggle to recruit a bass player in their school where no one seems to care about metal music. Luckily, a talented cellist (Isis Hainsworth) just may be what they need to create the ultimate metal band. Well, that, and to all actually be able to get along.

With a title this intense, you just know this movie means business. Choose or Die is a British horror-thriller in which two friends (Asa Butterfield and Iola Evans) reboot a mysterious 1980s video game in hopes of getting a chance to win unclaimed $100,000 prize money. What ensues is an unwanted journey into a surreal world of next-level terror as the two are forced to play not only for the money, but also for their lives.
Stream Choose or Die on Netflix
A movie within a movie! Don’t worry, it’s not as trippy or Inception-y as it may sound. The Bubble is a meta comedy that takes place in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic (what a familiar and scary setting!) and follows a group of actors who have traveled to a closed set in England to film the sixth installment of Cliff Beasts, an extremely successful dinosaur-themed blockbuster franchise within the movie’s universe. Directed by Judd Apatow, the movie has a star-studded cast that includes Pedro Pascal, Karen Gillan, Leslie Mann, Fred Armisen, David Duchovny, Keegan-Michael Key, Kate McKinnon, Guz Khan, Benedict Cumberbatch, Iris Apatow, and Maria Bamford — not a bad squad to be trapped in a pandemic bubbles with, that’s for sure!

We’re switching things up with this comedy-drama out of Spain which shows us that the cure to heartbreak just may be some wild shenanigans with your family. Much like the title suggests, Honeymoon with My Mother is about José Luis, a brokenhearted man who has been coerced into going through with his honeymoon with his overbearing mother after being jilted at the altar (ouch). Luis’s modified honeymoon quickly proves to him that he doesn’t know his mama as well as he thinks, and that her true self just may be even cooler than he ever imagined.

Okay, so technically it’s not a movie, but it IS a must-watch hour-long stand-up special from a hilarious comic, so you know this title had to be on our best on Netflix list for April! Speakeasy is the stylish sequel to internationally renowned comedian Ronny Chieng’s highly-acclaimed debut Netflix stand-up comedy special, Ronny Chieng: Asian Comedian Destroys America!. Here, Chieng performs live in New York City in the intimate setting of the Chinese Tuxedo bar and restaurant, using his unique comedic style and sensibility to give his take on everything from race relations to the current pandemic to cancel culture. Those with wanderlust will be especially entertained by the comedian’s various hilarious and wild tales about traveling as a world-touring comic. The special is truly a fun time for all that’ll bring the laughs this month long past April Fools’ Day has run its course!

Anyone who went to middle or high school in the 2000s is surely very familiar with the clothing store Abercrombie & Fitch (as well as the store’s distinctive scent and ridiculously attractive employees). Ah, yes, Abercrombie & Fitch, the company that conquered malls in the late ’90s and early ’00s with gorgeous models, pulsing dance beats and a fierce aroma. But while the brand was running white hot, its popular “all-American” image began to burn out as controversy arose surrounding its exclusionary marketing and discriminatory hiring tactics. For a juicy exclusive documentary on a retail company’s rise and fall, this is the movie for you this month.

No, you’re not seeing things, there is indeed another Bubble on this Top 11 list. But much like Room and The Room, these are two very different movies and that “the” is important, so if animation is your jam, then this is the correct Bubble for you! Bubble is a family-friendly anime action-adventure film out of Japan, in which one gifted young man has a fateful meeting with a mysterious girl whilst both are living in a version of Tokyo that is abandoned and overrun by bubbles and gravitational abnormalities. As a result, the city is a haven for the young people who lost their families after the bubbles went haywire. This is their story, told in stunning visuals and emotional vocal performances by an all-star Japanese voice acting cast.

If Bubble got you in the mood for more animation, then Apollo 10 1/2: A Space Age Childhood is just the film for you! This PG-13 visually-arresting coming-of-age sci-fi film out of Netflix is written, directed, AND produced by Richard Linklater (he’s a hard-working guy!), and has already received its fair share of critical acclaim. In the film (which is loosely inspired by Linklater’s own childhood), a man (Jack Black) narrates stories of his life as a 10-year-old boy in 1969 Houston, weaving tales of nostalgia with a fantastical account of a journey to the moon. Not only does Apollo 10 1/2 look amazing animation-wise, but it also boasts a great cast that includes Black, Glen Powell, Zachary Levi, Bill Wise, Josh Wiggins, and Lee Eddy, so start your April off strong by supporting their work!

It’d be difficult to find someone who hasn’t heard the name Marilyn Monroe before, so you’d think that we already know everything there is to know about the unforgettable actress who met her untimely end in 1962. Well, Netflix is here to show you that there is still more knowledge to be obtained, especially when it comes to the still-perplexing nature of Monroe’s passing. In the platform’s brand new documentary The Mystery of Marilyn Monroe: The Unheard Tapes, an investigative journalist reexamines the mysterious death of Marilyn Monroe, sharing his extensive audio interviews with the people who surrounded her, giving us a look at the actress as well as her life (and death) that we have never seen before.

Uh oh, ANOTHER title about outer space? You bet, but this time, it’s a documentary capturing the real-life minds leading the charge in the latest innovations with space travel. Return to Space captures Elon Musk and SpaceX engineers as they embark on a historic mission to return NASA astronauts to the International Space Station and, in doing so, revolutionize space exploration as we know it. If it sounds epic, it’s probably because it is.
